Safar (Arabic: صفر) is the second month of the Islamic month.

Literal meaning: Empty. During this month the houses used to be empty and deserted as most of the men spent a lot of the time out of their homes.  Safar also means to be yellow. When the names of the months were being given it was the season of autumn and the leaves of the trees were yellow. 

 Some people have superstitious beliefs regarding this month i.e. it is a month of misfortune and calamities. This is not true as the Prophet (PBUH) did not prohibit any celebrations or marriages in any month of the year.

Hadhrat Jaabir (R.A.) has said that, "I have heard the Prophet (PBUH) saying, the descending of illness and evil superstition befalling in the month of Safar is untrue." (Muslim)
